Hello! I am Lalith Vikram Natarajan. I am from Coimbatore, a city in South India which I hold very dear. I am currently a graduate student at The University at Buffalo majoring in Computer Science. I love computers and have good experience developing applications that run on them with a particular interest in data engineering. I am also a fan of minimalistic design and I strive to simplify things around me. I hold other interests besides technology which include movies, soccer, music, quizzing, travelling and anime.I sporadically write stuff on quora (I'm a regular lurker though :D). Feel free to browse around. Thank you!
Graduate Studies with concentration in Software Systems
I am a part of this exciting ad-tech startup that tracks emotional metrics in social media.

Canvs is the only qualitative social platform to track emotional metrics and audience behavior. It is based in New York City.
I was a part of this startup which focused on selling personalized jewelry. I worked on Python, Blender and various JS libraries while I was here. I had evaluated various technologies like OpenGL, Blender, Pillow, Sprite-spin and Three.js to create a custom 3D modeler for Augrav.com. We finalized an optimum solution using Blender, Sprite-Spin and hosted on Flask.
Augrav is a Krizda India Pvt Ltd venture specializing in personalized jewelry.

I was a Software Engineer in the OSP Engineering domain of Verizon Communications Inc., the telecom powerhouse. I worked on Java based enterprise web applications as a Full-Stack developer. Applications had to be migrated, upgraded and occasionally built from scratch. I modified and optimized code for merging multiple databases, automated a manual spatial process and was involved in flat file to .dgn migration. I was part of discussions on a web application based on Esri's ArcGIS and Spring. I built the application base using Spring and coded multiple modules in Java and jQuery. I also developed spatial web modules using Oracle Spatial and ArcGIS (built on top of the Dojo framework using REST API endpoints). I had fixed 300+ bugs and was presented an Ovation award for my efforts. I also mentored a small team of new joinees close to the end of my tenure.
